Funding (Updated 8/12/20)


For research students with funding, the assistantship and fellowship stipends and appointments will begin as scheduled. These dates will not shift with the change in the academic calendar, which is moving back by one week. For Spring 2021, stipends and appointments are scheduled to remain on the existing schedule. There will be no gap in funding between the summer and fall appointments or between the fall and spring appointments. The previously announced 3% stipend increase is being implemented.

International students who are on assistantship appointments and who are outside the U.S. must meet certain conditions to receive their stipend. Students should review Assistantship Appointments for Students Outside the U.S. for more information.
